I had two wonderful experiences this weekend.
We were invited to a Holiday Sail-past, with decorated boats all lit up sailing (motoring) past the town. We were warm and cosy inside the boat which a friend owns. It is an old converted fishing boat now a pleasure craft. I made a hot crab dip, and we tootled along behind other decorated boats, around a dozen in total. The water was flat calm, and seeing the town lights and the other boats reflected in the water, along with the moon was something I soon won't forget. At the end, there was a fireworks display on a barge in the harbour, which we watched from the boat. Spectacular!
And then yesterday we had a phone call from DS that a local small lake was frozen safely enough for skating, so we dug out the skates and joined the family for a skate. The weather was just under freezing, the sun was shining, and the ice was clear enough that you could see the frozen lily pads and grasses under the ice. I haven't pond-skated for a few years, and love when we get the chance. A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon in December, embracing what winter has to offer.
Have any of you had some nice experiences lately to share?
